mccarthy was running against him and don well in new hampshire. hadn't won but got a high percentage of the votes. more than anyone expected. it was after that when bobby kennedy thought there was an opportunity to come into the race. i think the president dropped out of the race for a couple of reasons. i think most importantly he felt and he talked to me a day or two before and harry mcphearson and the rose garden at the white house that he become a divisive force in the united states. that on two major issues on race and on the vietnam war, he had become a point of division. and that there was no way he could get over that and someone koels do it. i remember he said to me once, what do you think will happen if i don't run? i said i think bobby kennedy will get the nomination. which i thought he would react oh, my god. but instead, he said well, what's wrong with that? he said he cares about our great society programs and he'll have a little bit of a honeymoon. i won't have any honeymoon if i run again. >> most biographers paint a lot of tension. >> there was tremendous tension bet
